The time was right. The pro ladder didn’t have more rungs for Gomes. “Last year, when I was in Spain, I really didn’t play,” he said, “and I didn’t want to walk away from the game that way. If this coaching opportunity came last year, I might have said, ‘I want to play one more time.’ “But now, I walked away from playing the game.” So this past summer, Gomes reached out to the NBA. He queried former coaches and teammates and general managers. Always a popular man in the clubhouse, a fan favorite in every city he played with a tireless work ethic for community outreach, Gomes is a no-brainer as the right man to develop future NBA talent. “I am ready to hit the playbook,” Gomes said on Monday, “give advice to the team and the player, and see where that may lead.”
According to sources with knowledge of the person calling the shots in Baskonia, Gomes, who registered three DNPs in the Spanish ACB League, was ordered to sit out in favor of president’s Josean Querejeta underachieving signing Kim Tillie, who agreed to join Vitoria months before Crespi was hired. Baskonia, in case you wondered, are seed No. 15 with a poor 1-3 record. Whispers around Baskonia indicate that Querejeta pulls the strings, urging his coaching staff to provide extensive game-time for “his guys on multi-year contracts,” said the source — after his previous grossly overpaid signings Devon Van Oostrum, Walter Hodge and Adam Hanga were given significant checks to play for other squads this summer.
